On a bookshelf in my study are these three Asian figurines.
I got these three along with a Madonna figurine made of polychromed wood – it has color applied as well as gilding. They were offered together as a partial nativity set from Asia. However, while I found that the Madonna is made in the Philippines, it does not seem to be designed with the other three figures.
Now the three male statues are also subtly colored in muted green, tan and red, and with gilding applied. Some of the gilding has rubbed off. But they do not seem to be nativity figures.
Two figures are seated, while a younger-looking character is standing, mounted on a square base.
I have no idea how old the figurines are, or in what country they were made. It seems like wood, but may very well be resin. The only marking is attached to the standing figure. It is a cardstock tag which is printed in green with "Chrysara/ Item # [in black ink] "47-079"/ Desc. "Chia Lin"
If anyone knows about Asian arts and crafts and can help identify these figures, I would really appreciate the assistance.
